I enjoyed reading about the authors versus their characters, and what we can learn from each of them. There were a few books that I haven't read, so I've added them to my to-read list. Some of the authors mentioned are Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre), Jane Austen (Pride & Prejudice), Louisa May Alcott (Little Women), Margaret Mitchell (Gone With the Wind), Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird), and a few others. Some of the authors are completely scandalous, and Blakemore really likes them. Each author/character combo is an essay on its own. I recommend this to anyone who likes reading classics with a female lead.
